This game is played across a 5×3 set of reels with 50 ways to win. You can start betting from £1 per spin up to a maximum of £20. As well as the base game that requires you to make combinations of matching symbols, you’ll also experience features like the bonus wheel, multipliers, free spins and lucky multiplier bonus spins. Four jackpots can be won, including the mini, minor, major and grand jackpot. The grand jackpot is the biggest and is worth a massive £50,000!
Graphics and Theme
The reels’ background is maroon and textured, which makes it look like the felt on top of luxury casino tables. The bonus wheels spin slowly behind the reels, which creates a dynamic effect that draws your eyes to the screen. The reels are encased with a gold and red striped border, and there is a pearl white backing to the reels which create a nice contrast to the vibrant colours of the symbols. Finally, you’ll notice that the four jackpot prizes sit on top of the reels, giving you a view of exactly what’s possible to win in the game. Talk about motivation!
The soundtrack fits the Asian theme and uses traditional Chinese instruments like the Yangqin, the Pipa, the Dizi and the Guzheng. Together they create an extremely relaxing, ethereal tune that will have you feeling zen within minutes of starting the game. A series of quick clicking noise sound from your speaker when you hit spin, and the reels come to a stop one by one with a louder version of the clicking noise. Winning combinations create a classic arcade winning noise that you can’t miss.
The playing card symbols nine, 10, jack, queen, king, and ace make up the game’s low paying symbols. Ace is the most valuable out of the low paying symbols and is worth 1.5x your stake for five of a kind. The high-paying symbols include a red lantern, a lotus flower, a symbol, a koi carp and a golden ingot. The golden ingot is the most valuable symbol in the game and is worth 4x your stake for five of a kind.
There is also a geisha wild symbol that can substitute for anything except for the scatter symbol. A blue wooden pagoda represents the scatter symbol. Finally, there is also a bonus wheel symbol that triggers the bonus features.
Bonus wheel feature
To trigger the bonus wheel, you will need to land five or more bonus anywhere on your screen simultaneously. The wheel segments will show different win values. The win value can be regular cash prizes or one of the jackpots, which include a mini, minor, major, and grand jackpot. There is also a pointer to the left of the wheels. Whichever value the pointer is directed at when the wheel stops will be your prize.
If you trigger the round with five bonus symbols you will have a 1x multiplier applied, six bonus symbols will apply a 2x multiplier to your winnings, and seven to eight bonus symbols will apply a 5x multiplier to your bonus winnings. This applies only to non-jackpot prizes.
Once your winnings have been collected from the bonus wheel, your free spins game begins. The number of triggering symbols used to trigger the bonus wheel will determine how many free spins you get.
- Five bonus symbols = eight free spins
- Six bonus symbols = 12 free spins
- Seven to eight bonus symbols = 18 free spins
A new pay table is applied during the free spins game, which has lower values applied to each symbol. Also, during the free spins game wild symbols can only appear on the middle three reels and scatter symbols can only appear on the outer reels.
Lucky multiplier bonus spin
If you land the scatter symbol on reels one, three and five simultaneously during the free spins game, you will trigger the lucky multiplier bonus spin. One of three multiplier stacked wilds will appear on the reels during this bonus round. Every time you trigger this round, a new stacked wild will appear, bringing its unique multiplier value with it.
Once your lucky multiplier spin is over, you will return to play your remaining free spins if you have any left.
Before you get stuck into the action, you must decide on your betting value. You can place your bets from a little as £1 per spin up to a maximum of £20 per spin in this game. You can then hit spin manually or use the autoplay feature which will carry out up to 100 spins for you. The game is played on a 5×3 grid with 50 pay lines. It’s a high variance game with an average RTP of 95%. To win cash prizes, you will need to land three or more matching symbols across active pay lines. Triggering the bonus wheel feature and free spins is achieved by landing five or more bonus wheel symbols anywhere on your screen. So, watch out for that!
